   CEFL14 - Mold Odor Abatement (14 hours)
Onsite #0000332 Online LIVE #0000384

NORMI™ introduces this 14 hour course built around how to eliminate and manage malodors. During the remediation process and after, odors can be problematic for much of the population so understanding where these odors come from and how to eliminate them with current technologies is a must.

I've attended my fair share of educational classes and certifications, including several odor removal courses/certifications. I've come to expect a basic learning experience with the instructor(s) freely telling war stories of situations they've encountered and resolved...with little education and/or insider knowledge as to how and the science behind it. Most instructors are happy to boast throughout the class, but rarely shared any insider knowledge and the actual methods used. The educational material is usually dry, down-right boring, and so scripted that the presentation slides feel like nothing more than a read-along offering as the instructor reads them to the class attendees. In short, very little "real" content, a limited learning experience, and "good enough" to pass the certification test. It's sad, but true.

However I was quite pleased, thrilled would be a better description, with Louis Adams' Odor Abatement Specialist certification class! Louis is not the usual instructor, and I mean that in a very complimentary manner! Louis actually shares his knowledge, keeps the attendees engaged, shares his insider secrets and somehow manages to cover all the material without once just reading presentation slides to us! I'm proud to say I actually learned quite a bit from this class! Did he touch on war stories? Yes, but not to brag...but to actually educate us. He shared not only the odor issues he worked on, but he actually shared HOW he resolved it. He gave us many tips, willingly shared the "secrets" of the trade and covered all the course material in a fun and engaging way! This was one of the few classes I ever attended where I felt the instructor was truly engaged and excited to teach the subject matter. Louis even shared his contact information....and he actually responds in a post-class environment! I really believe he's more than an instructor; he's a mentor!

You want to really learn about odor abatement? Attend Louis Adams' class....the man is a true expert in the odor abatement field! The price paid for Louis' knowledge is a bargain!

   CEFL16 - Mold Project Lead Removal
Onsite #0000353

IMPORTANT: This is the official EPA Lead RRP training course that allows you to be certified by the EPA and protect you from the potential $37,500 fine for non-compliance. Only these states are NOT included for certification as they have their own training requirements. This RRP training does not certify for work done in Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin, or in the Bois Forte Tribe.

Introduction and welcome - The purpose of this class is to educate mold remediators on the proper removal and disposal of lead contaminated mold-infected construction materials. When pre-1978 homes are under consideration, special circumstances require that the remediator be properly trained in the removal of materials. This class includes instruction through video and hands-on training that equips the licensed mold assessor to write appropriate protocol and remediators to do the proper job.

Module 1: Why Should I Be Concerned - This section helps the mold professional understand the unique circumstances surrounding pre-1978 homes. Understanding the health issues related to this subject is critical to create the proper containment and disposal of contaminated materials.

Module 2: Regulations - There are two set of guidelines that govern such projects and this section discusses both. The EPA RRP guidelines specifically deal with lead contaminated construction materials while the NORMI Professional Practices provides insured best practices for the safe removal and disposal of such materials.

Module 3-4: Before Beginning Work & Containing Dust During Work - Hands-on training will allow the student to actually build containment and better understand the importance of isolating critical barriers. The section will also include the explanation and demonstration of negative air machines and air scrubbing as they impact the engineering controls required for proper containment.

Module 5: Controlling Dust - During the gross demolition process, the control of particulate is critical to creating a successful PRV. In this section we will demonstrate, and the student will participate in, the proper disposal techniques and maintaining containment throughout the project incorporating negative air and proper air scrubbing.

Module 6: Cleaning Activities and Checking Your Work - Cleaning the surfaces requiring a much higher level of detail surfacing cleaning than the standard mold remediation project. More like dealing with high-risk occupants, the remediation process requires a different kind of protocol and PRV standard. Interim inspections are required throughout the process and so checking your work is discuss in some detail.

Module 7: Recordkeeping - The mold project where lead is involved must be documented in a very specific way to protect the assessor, remediator, employees and occupants from potential downside litigation. This section discusses that process. This section further discusses the importance of having the remediator's work-force properly trained in this critical process.

Quiz/Certification - To receive a certification for this level of remediation, the student will take a short thirty (30) question quiz and, once passed, receive a certification for the removal of lead during a mold project.

   CEFL20 - Certified Mold Remediation for Sensitized Individual (14hr)
Onsite #0000412 Online LIVE #0000417

This course is designed to train remediation and assessment contractors on the special techniques and protocols that should be used when dealing with sensitized individuals. Although substantial progress has been made in the last two decades in developing appropriate procedures, industry guidelines, and even regulations regarding mold remediation; most of those efforts have been directed toward remediation that produces an environment that is safe for typical occupants. However, experience has shown that such "standard" remediation projects, even when done in full compliance with the current industry standard of care, often are not enough to create a safe environment for individuals who have become sensitized to mold.

   CEFL23 - NORMI Certified Microbial Professional (NCMP™)

The NCMP™ represents the highest-level training available in the mold remediation industry. From its inception, it incorporated a number of features which set it apart from other offerings in the restoration industry. As it was prior to the rebranding, prerequisites to the NCMP require interested individuals to have successfully completed a mold remediation technician course and a mold remediation supervisor course (while these courses are also offered by Wonder Makers Environmental, the prerequisites can be obtained from a number of sources including NORMI, IICRC, Indoor Sciences, etc.). In addition to successfully completing the NCMP course, the completion of a capstone project is required of indviduals who aspire to become a NORMI Certified Microbial Professional.



   CEFL25 - NORMI™ Indoor Environmental Health Assessment (IEHA)
Onsite #0000448 Online LIVE #0000447

There is a missing link in on-site inspections and remediation. Because the building didn't call for help, a person did. A problem in an occupied building starts with the people and ends with the people. People are what links the awareness of a particular problem with the satisfactory conclusion of that problem.

The building itself is an instrument to be adjusted and tuned into acceptability for the benefit of the people who occupy that building. HOW to work effectively and safely with the people, within the context of the building, is the missing link.

The NORMI™ Indoor Environmental Health Assessment class provides you with specific tools you can use to address each of the "people" issues, just like you have tools for addressing the building issues. The results gained from the use of these tools then allow you to address the building issues with more clarity and focus.



   CEFL26 - NORMI™ Certified Moisture Thermographer (NCMT™)
Onsite #0000448 Online LIVE #0000447

This course is designed to give an overview of infrared cameras and the use of thermography in the detection of moisture and mold in building structures. It will address basic concepts such as heat flow and emissivity that affect thermal readings, Infrared camera capabilities, usage, and care, and the use of thermography in the detection of conditions that could lead to mold growth and IAQ issues. The goal is to give the IAQ professional another tool to use in the detection and mitigation of moisture issues that lead to mold growth.
